NUFC Not a big club......

Another example for those who need it, Barnsley away not exactly a glamour match.

5,700 sold out and we've asked for more. After all these years you'd think I'd not be surprised, but sometimes our support astonishes me. What other club with no domestic trophy in over 50 years playing in their country's 2nd division playing a club of Barnsley's stature would command such a following?

Chelsea top of the Premiership rarely fill their own ground, especially for the non glamour games, let alone take so many away.

NUFC not a big club - the rest of the country will never understand what this club is all about.

I might be going to Reading if I can get tickets. Son has been begging me for a while to take him to a Newcastle match again. Won't go to St James' Park though while the fat cunt is still there!

Agree with figs here Leeds have a massive following but are they classed as a big club now,the same goes for us.

We along with Leeds are only a big club now because of our fan base nowt else. I always classed a big club by what they have done trophy wise or at least where they finish in the table.

Look at Man City they are the richest club in world football but i dont class them as a big club until they win something and actually finish in the top 4 on a regular basis.

The only true big clubs to me are Manure/Chelsea/Liverpool/Arsenal the rest aspire to this.

Perhaps if we had owners with long term sensible plans instead of short sighted attempts to bleed club dry we would have been more successful over the decades of neglect and mismanagement that ensued after '55.

Even when SJH and KK appeared to be getting it right the spectre of flotation and money rose it's ugly head and lost us our manager and impetus. Under Shepherd SBR had us getting there, then more short term money based decisions cost us with only a Lee Bowyer free transfer being invested in the squad.

Sorry, but whether people like it or not we are a huge club due to a bit like Leeds being a 1 club city.

We are still the 8th most successful club in England if trophies is how you measure club size, the fact not many of our support alive witnessed that success is irrelevant.

Astonishing really. Nealry 6,000 tickets is a brilliant achievement for any club, let alone a tin pot outfit like ourselves.

Tin pot outfit is too generous mate.

We are more like a bucket of shit.
